"Iron Horse"

For the dome-shaped thing in the middle of the locomotive I used splines to create patches.
When the dome was modeled, with some work on the bottom part I made it to fit over the cylinder.

Some parts of the piston and the cylinder was covered with some nuts, bolts and rivets, the steam pipe was made with loft object. The rotation transmitter for the big wheel was made with shape/bevel and boolean operation with 'capsule' (extended primitives). The headlight wires are visible splines.
In short, the modeling technics are standard, there are no measurements, all is built by eye.

Let's compare the 3D model with the original photo. In the front viewport looks like the
model is a little bit heavy in comparison with the original. But it's not bad.
